Marshmallows make everything better, right?

Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes - Walmart
We all know adding marshmallows to any cereal automatically makes it better, right? That's a given, but when I saw these I was originally worried that they might be too sweet, so I passed them by. A few months later, my fiance's daughter was over the moon for the chocolate version Lucky Charms, and I bought several boxes...but then they disappeared. To fill the void in our pantry, I decided to give these a shot.

Wanna-be Nutella - Hazelnut Spread m&m's

Hazelnut m&m's - Dollar Tree
These have been out for a while, and I couldn't really avoid the spoilers. General consensus among foodies and food-reviewers, these are not great. Why buy them anyway? I don't have a concrete answer for that. I guess it's like when someone tries something gross, like those Bertie Bott's Every Flavor jelly beans, and then you see their reaction. You know it's bad, and it's going to be bad, but you just have to try it for yourself. Or is that just me?

Italian Hoagie Potato Chips- The un-official flavor of NJ?

PrimoHoagies Italian Hoagie Potato Chips - CVS
When did CVS, a drug store, become such a lucrative epicenter for bizarre snackfoods?
These were on an end-cap next to the Herr's Orange Cream Balls and the Herr's Cotton Candy Balls. (It seems like Herr's is very into balls right now...) I decided to pass on the orange balls, for now, but I couldn't pass up a hoagie flavored chip.

Grands Strawberry & Cream Cinnamon Rolls
These strawberry & cream cinnamon rolls have been released a few times over the years, but I never managed to get my hands on them, until now!

Serious Beans-ness - Buckin' Buffalo Beans

Serious Bean Co Buckin'  Buffalo Beans - Walmart
Just a quickie review for today. Like last time, I forgot to take an open can bean picture, but I don't think any of you are missing out. Just imagine normal baked beans, but redder.
So, will these beans kick your next BBQ up a notch?

Hey, Remember These...?

Carrot Cake Oreos  - CVS
You know how I have a tenancy to buy things and post the reviews long after the item has left shelves and lost it's relevance? Yeah, me neither.
Anyway, are those Carrot Cake Oreos!

Tastes Like Freedom - Mountain Dew Liberty Brew (50 Flavors in one)

Mountain Dew Liberty Brew - Wawa
First off, let me applaud Mountain Dew for creating the blue toilet-bowl-cleaner soda color of my 90's-kid dreams. Visually I am having flashbacks to Pepsi Blue and I am 100% here for it, but as I got closer I realized that it smells like a bomb pop. So American, it's amazing! If there are 50 different flavors here, which I kind of doubt, they all must be fruit-based. Actually, aren't all Mountain Dew flavors fruit based? They don't have a cola flavor, so maybe this is the mixed-fruit-smoothie of all their fruity flavorings mixed into one? (With added blue dye because I am sure the true color of a dew-strocity would be nightmareish to say the least.) 
Time to see if I can taste the Dew-infused rainbow!

Oh, Fudge! It's Back! - Milky Way Fudge

Milky Way Fudge - CVS
Milky Way Fudge is back!
I live in a Snickers household, (I'm outnumbered, 2-to-1), so I don't buy Milky Way very often, but in my eyes, they are the superior candy bar. I'm just not a fan of peanuts in my candy. Peanut butter? Sure. Actual peanuts? It's like trail mix masquerading as candy. No thanks. 
That being said, a new flavor is a great excuse to grab some MilkyWays, and I was really excited that this flavor in particular. Milky Way Fudge had a limited run in 2018, but I missed out on it. But now it's back! (New candy is the best candy consumption excuse!)
Also, I found these at CVS when I was buying a bag of stress-Cheetos after a long, and rainy, work-week, and who doesn't want a bit of chocolate when they're in full melt-down mode? Let's see if this new flavor can usurp Midnight as my number one!
